Bug Description

Binary package hint: xserver-xorg-video-intel

since upgrading to the latest version in Maverick two days ago, my mouse pointer is invisible on the desktop. When I hover over buttons or list entries, they get highlighted and I can click on them. But the pointer still remains invisible. Even in gdm I don't have a mouse pointer.
BTW: I have removed unclutter and rebooted, but the problem is still there.
